Next: Installing EMBOSS on FreeBSD
EMBOSS can be installed on almost all Unix/Linux operating systems
using the instructions above, but the package format can be far more
convenient. A package is a precompiled set of binaries with
installation instructions that can be set up on your system with a
minimum of work. In some cases the package will check for the correct
libraries and install those as necessary.
Installing EMBOSS in package format
Brief instructions are given here for the packages of which we are
aware. These are maintained separately from the main source tree and
may also install some files in operating system standard locations
instead of the locations used by the `raw' EMBOSS
distribution. Please read the more detailed instructions that
accompany each package.
